Attorney General William Barr joked Friday that his return to the Justice Department reminded him of the Allied invasion on D-Day.

During a speech to new FBI agents graduating from the agency’s academy, Barr quipped that his second term as U.S. Attorney General had felt like parachuting into enemy territory.

“I’m a two-time offender…this is my second stint as Attorney General,” he said Friday.

“As we’ve been watching the coverage of June 6, 1944 — D-Day — I had the thought that my arrival this time felt a little bit, I think, like jumping into Sainte-Mère-Église on the morning of June 5, trying to figure out where you could land without getting shot,” Barr joked.
