What’s The Real Story? (Part Four)

What’s the real story? Michael Cohen was telling us something we already knew about Trump being a racist..

It comes with the territory, knowing that about fifty percent of these Americans will still support him, that’s what the case is…

…as we face this and other detrimental situations; no Oxford Covid Vaccine?  damn!! Trump said it’ll be on the scene by election day!!

What’s the real story? an O-Dog instrumental will accompany this good word as we try to get over the hump per this HumpDay Extravaganza!we’re ready to roll  / we’re on our way!!

…in familiar territory, out on I-20  in Atlanta trying to figure out who’ll understand a bro!! I came a long way from when I was struggling and the hooptie  broke down!! they had me rolling in a rental!

What’s the real story?  actually it was wreckage from when the old dude over on Buford Highway in Chamblee ran into the hooptie with his old school Toyota Corolla, the truth be told!! cold!! they had me all up in the Jeep Cherokee,  old school is the attitude of the mental!
