Walmart Teams Up With Ellen DeGeneres for EV1 Clothing Collection

Walmart (wmt)is borrowing a page from Target’s (tgt)playbook to rev up its apparel sales.

The retailer said in a blog post on Wednesday that it has lined up television star Ellen DeGeneres to launch a collection of casual clothes in September in a bid to spruce up its clothing selection. Walmart, the world’s largest retailer, is primarily known for basic clothing presented in a no-frills way, rather than celebrity collaborations of the kind that has made Target a major apparel destination.

The DeGeneres tie-up, called EV1 and consisting of some 60 items costing $30 or less to start, comes amid a number of moves by Walmart to be a bigger player in the world of fashion. Walmart recently added an e-commerce page to its web site for HBC’s (hbc) Lord & Taylor department store chain, as it looks to showcase higher end brands. Walmart has also bought retailers like ModCloth, Bonobos, and Moosejaw in the past two years to expand its assortment for middle class customers. EV1 items will also be sold at roughly 2,300 stores, or half its fleet.

“We’ve been hard at work transforming the fashion experience on walmart.com,” Denise Incandela, head of fashion for Walmart’s U.S. digital operations, wrote in the blog post.

Omarosa: DeVos said black college students lack the 'capacity to understand' her agenda

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos allegedly said the students who booed her May 2017 commencement speech at a historically black college didn't have the "capacity to understand" what she wants to accomplish, according to the tell-all book by former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman.

Manigault Newman describes DeVos' comments during a conversation with her after the May address at Florida's Bethune-Cookman University as "meaning, all those black students were too stupid to understand her agenda."

Manigault Newman trashes DeVos throughout the book and calls her "woefully inadequate and not equipped for her job." She alleges President Donald Trump referred to the education secretary as "Ditzy DeVos" and promised to "get rid of her" after the Bethune-Cookman event.

In the book, "Unhinged: An Insider's Account of the Trump White House," Manigault Newman also blames DeVos for confusion around an annual conference in D.C. for historically black colleges and universities, which the administration downsized in September 2017. She writes that DeVos was the "number one driver for cancellation."

Pompeo Ignores Plea From Diplomats With Children With Special Needs

Source: Foreign Policy

State Department diplomats who have children with disabilities and mental health issues say U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has been ignoring their pleas for help in a struggle they’ve been waging for more than a year now against the erosion of their medical and education benefits.

A group of foreign service officers representing some 1,400 families sent Pompeo a letter in May saying the State Department had slashed benefit options and funding for children with special needs.

In the letter, obtained recently by Foreign Policy, the officials warned that the State Department Bureau of Medical Services was taking “deleterious actions” to restrict funding access for benefits the department is required to offer under U.S. disability law.

Now, nearly three months later, the secretary of state has yet to respond to the letter.

Trump slurs Omarosa as 'that dog' in latest attack on former White House aide

President Donald Trump compared former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault-Newman to an animal in his ongoing feud with the reality TV star.

Trump’s three-time “Apprentice” castmate has been releasing secret White House recordings as she promotes her new tell-all book, and the president has been attacking Manigault’s intelligence and credentials.

“When you give a crazed, crying lowlife a break, and give her a job at the White House, I guess it just didn’t work out,” Trump tweeted. “Good work by General Kelly for quickly firing that dog!
