What happened to 40 seconds?

What about it? It's a "suggestion" more than anything.

And… you can move loose impediments, but there's a line, and he may have crossed it.

I believe the rules official(s) indicated that the waste bunker was filled with tiny pebbles (not sand) and therefore he was allowed to remove the loose impediments (pebbles).  Kuchar was permitted to excavate around his ball but I think he displayed extremely poor judgment in doing so.  He is a professional, on TV, and should have considered the image he was projecting.

His actions this year tell me he doesn't care about how others view him, which is fine.  I suspect his fan base has contracted significantly.

You may now remove loose impediments from bunkers

Was this a bunker or was it in the general area? (i.e. a "waste area"?)

Waste area...not a bunker.

You know, a year or so ago, I was a fan of Matt Kuchar, but 2019 has not made me lose enthusiasm about him. 

I do not think you are alone in that.
