People Are Cringing Over Trump’s Adviser Saying The Inauguration Will Have "Soft Sensuality"

Julia Reinstein,

[JB note - Forget "soft power" (a form of "public diplomacy, or maybe vice versa). Hey, so how about an Under Secretary of State for Soft Sensuality? (USSS? - of course no connection to the USSR) :).]

Inauguration planner Tom Barrack told reporters on Tuesday that Trump’s ceremony will feature a “soft sensuality.” [JB comment: No, no relation to that guy born in Kenya, as the double r's prove.]

“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.


Expect Trump's inauguration to have a "soft sensuality" not a "circus-like celebration" with celebrities, says his inauguration planner

Dear President-elect Trump, would be honored to contribute to the soft sensuality of your inauguration in whatever manner I can.

What will this softly sensual inauguration will be like? People have ideas.

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
