Melodrama already has 2 and will have (at least) 2 more, same for Channel orange.
Also, what's the other Melodrama song you expect to appear? We already have "Liability" and "Perfect Places" and "Green Light"'s placement is a given, but what's the other song?

There are rumors now that Trump may resign rather than taking a beating in the election, attempting to martyr himself.
It would be interesting to see, but I think the man is such a huge narcissist that he has to continue, he can’t drop out and be seen as a “quitter”.
