The FBI director is not one out of any set of positions that should have been filled months ago because it was filled months ago. Criticizing someone for not doing something that they did in fact do is not fair no matter how incompetent and corrupt they are.
You completely missed the point.
There are several hundred key positions that haven't been filled - that aren't even close to being filled - that should have been filled months ago. To be this far behind in filling key positions is a sign of serious incompetence on the part of this administration.
Regardless of how long it's been open, the FBI director is just one position. It frankly pales in comparison to the overall problem.
I'm not criticizing Trump for not filling the FBI director position; I'm criticizing him for the much larger problem, and refusing to give him a pass on the FBI director position just because it happens to be more recent.
A big part of the selling point for Trump - and the reason we were all supposed to overlook the vulgarity and narcissism and the rest of his bullshit - was that he could get things done. So far, he hasn't impressed on that front.
