First off, these weren't executive orders, they were presidential memorandum.
Second, if you read the memo, you would see the following:
This memorandum does not limit the nomination and appointment of officials to positions requiring Presidential appointment or Senate confirmation, the appointment of officials to non-career positions in the Senior Executive Service or to Schedule C positions in the Excepted Service, or the appointment of any other officials who serve at the pleasure of the appointing authority. Moreover, it does not limit the hiring of personnel where such a limit would conflict with applicable law. This memorandum does not revoke any appointment to Federal service made prior to January 22, 2017.
Finally, something is wrong with this iteration. Sloppy snark, no due diligence, very lazy; it's like Windows 8 that was supposed to be an upgrade but really was just a giant dumpster fire.
