MEGYN KELLY: Well, what is punching?
RON MISCAVIGE: I never punched my daughters.
MEGYN KELLY: Just your wife?
RON MISCAVIGE: In the arm or in the back. Look, I regret it. I don't know what to say to you. I'm not making excuses for it. It was a horrible thing. When I got in Scientology, the day I got in Scientology, I realized I had what's called a case. I realized that I was dramatizing things that I saw growing up as a kid in the coal region. There was never any touching her after that.
MEGYN KELLY: So they discouraged that, Scientology discouraged that kind of abuse.
RON MISCAVIGE: Absolutely, absolutely.
