Have you not noticed that Trump immediately applies everything he's criticized for onto his opponents? Bad temperment? No, I have a great temperment, YOU have a bad temperment! Angry? I'm calm, YOU'RE angry! Abuse women? Nobody has more respect for women than me, you abuse women! Puppet? No puppet, no puppet - you're the puppet! Every single time, he's like a mirror. I swear, if Hillary said "Your beauty pageants were poorly produced", he'd respond with, "No, YOUR beauty pageants were poorly produced!"

It makes him all too easy to bait during debates.

(And no, I don't think Trump actually uses drugs - it was just funny timing ;) )

Right. Because the one email linked in your article is this. Oh, that's oh so damning. The rest of your article is built around O'Keefe garbage. The guy who built his career on selective editing and deception.

They've also just released some of Obama's emails where they're discussing picking positions with race and sex as the criteria

Link to the email. Not a right wing blog, not O'Keefe garbage, the actual email.

Quite true. Actually, what I found most interesting was the part right before that:

"One of my first acts will be to get all of the drug lords, all of the bad ones - we have some bad, bad people in this country that have to go out...." SNIIIIIIFFFFF! "... we're gonna get them out..."

Deep snorting while talking about drug lords is a bit less than opportune timing ;)

(Also: apparently the drug lords are in the US?)

Beagle 2 didn't involve, as mentioned, " a smouldering wreck, the kind you'd expect from mostly full hydrazine tanks slamming into a surface at high speeds"

Shiaparelli ditched its parachutes and stopped thrusting while moving at high speeds at high altitude. There's a lot we don't know, but among the things we do, is that it's not just standing there in the sky, Wile E. Coyote style, waiting for someone to point out to it that it should be falling.

Indeed. I live in Europe, but I find little that's admirable about ESA in comparison to NASA. They're not nearly as open with the public, nor nearly as successful. NASA has its faults, but I'd take a European version of NASA over the ESA any day.

The openness issues don't just stem to press conferences. They also embargo mission data a lot more and have more strict licenses on reuse of ESA products. It's.... let's just say "unfortunate". And it needs to change.
