Thursday, FNC’s Tucker Carlson panned the glowing media reaction to President Joe Biden’s address to a joint session of Congress a night earlier. On the left side of the political spectrum, pundits sounded off on Biden’s delivery in very favorable terms, which Carlson mocked. Carlson also criticized the substance of the speech, which Biden repeated his claim that no constitutional amendment was absolute in reference to the Second Amendment. Transcript as follows: CARLSON: Joe Biden spoke to a Joint Session of the Congress last night. If you saw it, and relatively few people did judge by the numbers, then you know that the confusing part started even before the speech began. It was the masks again. Everyone was wearing a mask, very much including the two stern ladies sitting right behind Joe Biden. That would be the Speaker of the House and the real President.

Sharon Van Etten has officially released her cover of Daniel Johnston ’s “Some Things Last a Long Time.” As Stereogum notes, Van Etten recorded the cover, plus an original song , for the 2020 documentary, Feels Good Man , about the creator of Pepe the Frog. (It’s unclear if this had any bearing on Van Etten’s song choice, but Johnston designed a cartoon frog of his own, “Jeremiah the Innocent,” who appears on the famous Hi, How Are You? mural in Austin; Jeremiah, however, has not been adopted as a favored meme of the alt-right.)
