It also explains why she is hit so hard by the personal comments Phyllis lobs at Betty during the debate. Phyllis, who is losing the debate completely on the merits of her arguments, primarily because her arguments have no merits, attacks Betty personally, alluding to the fact that her husband left her and married a much younger woman. (The way Blanchett pauses just a half-second longer on the word “beauty” when she talks about women losing their beauty, as if to imply that Betty never had beauty to lose, is absolutely wicked.) It’s a total Trump move, and also a move that Phyllis learned from debate prepping with her husband, Fred. (Have you noticed how practically every idea that Phyllis has is something she co-opted from someone else? Because I have.)

Blanchett shines in this unsympathetic role — you can see what a terrific Hedda Gabler she must of been — you want to rip her to shreds yet can’t help but feel sorry that no one listened to her discuss the ways and means of missiles.

Blanchett’s Schlafly is a pastel nightmare, arch and juicily camp.
