Tone-deaf William Barr compares being Trump’s attorney general to the D-Day invasion

Just a day after the 75th anniversary of the D-Day invasion, Attorney General William Barr decided it would be a good time to claim that his return to the Department of Justice was a great deal like the 1944 Battle of Normandy which left 4,414 Allied forces dead.

Speaking at the FBI academy on Friday, Barr remarked:

“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.”

Yeah, it’s just like the brave souls who shed their blood to defend freedom and democracy, isn’t it, Mr. Barr? Only, it ISN’T and NEVER WILL BE! One was a brutal war and the other is a legal hack returning so he can protect a president who is accused of obstructing justice on at least 10 separate occasions.

Twitter quickly lit up with well-deserved scorn for the so-called attorney general:

Here’s a suggestion for William Barr: Never compare yourself to real heroes. You are not and never will be one. You’re a coward, just like the man who nominated you.
