Inauguration day is usually a circus, according to those who know. The day is typically a celebration, but President-elect Trump is ready to buck yet another beltway standard: trade in the circus for sensuality.
“We're fortunate in that we have the greatest celebrity in the world, which is the president-elect, side by side with the current president,” said Thomas Barrack, chairman of Trump's inaugural committee, The Washington Post reported. “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. The cadence of it is going to be 'let me get back to work.'"
Some speculate that the dearth of performers who accepted the invitation to perform on Jan. 20 is part of the shift.
Others wonder exactly what part of Washington DC is the soft and sensual part. Others, prefer not to know.
NOTE: Some of the language used by Twitter users can be a bit... salty. You have been warned. Now enjoy!
@CharlesPPierce I vow from here out only to refer to the the Prez & Vice elect as “Soft Sensuality” and “Poetic Cadence”.— Douglas Jones (@Skandalous) January 11, 2017

It will be like jerking off to the Cat in the Hat.
"soft sensuality" and "poetic cadence"?? as a former Washingtonian, this gives me the impression he's never been there https://t.co/ibrE8osXx6— Megan Smolenyak (@megansmolenyak) January 10, 2017
'I have like the best poetic cadence. Nobody cadences poetics like me.' https://t.co/PpLwY6v2oA— Jacco Prantl (@jacco) January 10, 2017
Well, yeah. But that's because he thought "Poetic Cadence" was a stripperhttps://t.co/xCrXqza9cZ— Chris Eigeman (@ChrisEigeman) January 10, 2017
