President Joe Biden struck a hopeful but cautionary tone on coronavirus during his first prime-time address to the country on Thursday.
The speech was delivered hours after Biden signed a $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief bill. Although the bill was opposed by every Republican, $1,400 relief checks will begin being deposited this weekend.
But over at Fox News, the network was apparently worried about Biden speaking for too long. While Donald Trump routinely gave speeches lasting more than an hour -- with multiple speeches lasting longer than 90 minutes -- Fox complained about Biden's 24-minute address.
"Biden should be finished; Tucker is on any minute," the chyron read as Biden finished his remarks.

Fox News personality Tucker Carlson also gave real-time reaction to the speech through his facial expressions:
