Clinton had a lot (several) that either withdrew themselves or were not approved for either tax matters concerning a domestic or immigration status.  Do you not remember that it became almost a joke, happening in close proximity.  Bush Jr. had a few too.

Heather - worked for Fox News, including stint on Fox & Friends.  Hey, that's all the vetting Celebrity President requires.  (Plus, I'm sure he checked with his closest advisors, Rush and Sean, first.)

Heather Nauert, Trump's pick for U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations had withdrawn her name from consideration. It appears she had hired a nanny who lacked the appropriate work visa and then did not pay the appropriate employer taxes related to the hire. She fixed the tax issue in later years but this was enough to screw the pooch on her U.N. nomination.  She withdrew her name, Trump has another empty seat, the next Ambassador pick will be branded the second choice. 
 
In other administrations, (Obama, Bush, Clinton, Bush.......) the pick would have been fully vetted before the name was put forward.  Not so in the Trump administration where incompetence reigns supreme.  So, America sinks lower on the list of countries able to actually operate effectively on the world stage. 
 
Tired or winning yet?  I sure am tired of this level of incompetence.
