The left mocked her as an equal rights amendment opponent who paved the way for Donald Trump (whom she endorsed six months ago).

The right hailed her as an anti-abortion leader who kept the faith via her Eagle Forum.

Trump’s campaign manager Kellyanne Conway tweeted: “Thank you, Phyllis Schlafly, for your grace, strength, courage and impact. Always classy. Never shirked from a fight. God bless you.”

Reaction wasn’t always classy but continued the fight.
