"We’re fortunate in that we have the greatest celebrity in the world, which is the president-elect; side-by-side is the current president," Barrack said.

"So what we’ve done instead of trying to surround him with what people consider A-listers, is we are going to surround him with the soft sensuality of the place. It’s a much more poetic cadence than having a circus-like celebration that’s a coronation."

People all cringed at once. It was the cringe heard round the world.

Inauguration to Have A "Soft Sensuality"

This is how I imagine the Trump inauguration's "soft sensuality" will play out:

TRUMP: I'm thinking candles. A little Kenny G. The Lincoln Bible. That scented warming oil we keep in Daddy's special drawer #SoftSensuality

Lots and lots of ideas.
