I was thinking Trump would find Angelyne's 'qualifications' perfect for the job underneath him.

But then, 'working' quite a bit in D.C. might make her an insider.

Re: Diamond Check

HCA is a rejection tool, not an acceptance tool. Why? Because the crown and pavilion angles plugged into the HCA are actually averages of 8 numbers.
