Multiple news outlets have now confirmed that Trump Labor Department nominee Andy Puzder has withdrawn his nomination. Puzder has taken his name out of consideration after several Republicans urged Trump to withdraw Puzder’s nomination.

Puzder’s nomination had been scheduled to be considered by the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, but that hearing had already been postponed five times.

The head of the fast-food giant of which burger chains Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr. are a part, has been under fire for weeks. Puzder admitted to having hired an undocumented immigrant as a housekeeper. Allegations spousal abuse and claims that he had treated employees poorly have dogged his nomination for weeks. Puzder is the first major Trump nominee to withdraw their name from consideration.

Did he think people would just shrug their shoulders over some of this stuff?…on the other hand, a lot of shrugging went on before the election for many people, and look who’s in charge…hmm…
