Ex-Gymnasts Tell Megyn Kelly That Coach Ignored Reports Of Larry Nassar’s Abuse | Megyn Kelly TODAY


>>>NO MATTER WHAT LARRY WAS SUPPOSED TO BE TREATING ON ME OVER THE YEARS, USUALLY MY ANKLES OR MY KNEES, HIS FINGERS ALWAYS SEEMED TO FIND THEIR WAY INSIDE OF ME. YOUR KINDNESS WAS SIMPLY A PLOY TO MOLEST ME EVERY CHANCE YOU GOT.>>WE’RE SPEAKING WITH THREE OF THE 156 WOMEN WHO CAME FORWARD TO SHARE THEIR PERSONAL STORIES OF ABUSE BY SOMEONE WHO THEY WERE TOLD THEY COULD TRUST. TEAM USA JIM GYMNASTICS DOCTOR, LARRY NASSAR. MATTY, YOUR REACTION TO NASSAR IN COURT AND HIS OWN VICTIM ROUTINE OF, WELL, IT WAS ALL MEDICAL AND HELL HATH NO FURY LIKE A WOMAN SCORNED, WHEN YOU WATCHED THAT AND HEARD THAT, WHAT WAS YOUR REACTION?>>I WAS ANGRY, BUT UNFORTUNATELY I WAS NOT SURPRISED WHATSOEVER. HE — AT THE COURTHOUSE, HE WAS STILL TRYING TO MANIPULATE US LIKE WE WERE STILL HIS VICTIMS. TURNING AROUND AND LOOKING AT US AND SAYING HIS FAKE APOLOGY. AND YOU COULD JUST SEE, HE HAS NO REMORSE FOR WHAT HE DID. HE’S JUST –>>HE’S SORRY FOR HIMSELF.>>HE’S A SAD, SAD, SAD HUMAN BEING.>>LET’S TALK ABOUT THE ENABLERS. THERE’S A LONG LIST FROM USA GYMNASTICS TO MSU AND BEYOND. CAN WE TALK ABOUT THIS WOMAN, KATHY KLAGIS.>>SHE WAS THE HEAD GYMNASTICS COACH AT MSU. SHE WAS ALSO THE FIRST ONE TO RECEIVE THE FIRST KNOWN REPORT OF SEXUAL ASSAULT. THERE WAS A GYMNAST WHO SPOKE UP WHO WAS 16 YEARS OLD. SHE CAME AND TOLD HER IN GRAPHIC DETAIL. SHE SAID HE WAS FINGERING HER LIKE A BOYFRIEND. HER RESPONSE WAS THAT’S NOT POSSIBLE, YOU MUST BE MISTAKEN. THEN SHE PROCEEDED TO PARADE IN ALL THE REST OF HER TEAMMATES IN FRONT OF HER TO HUMILIATE HER AND ASK IF ANYONE ELSE FELT THE SAME WAY. A 14-YEAR-OLD SPOKE UP WHO HAS TESTIFIED IN COURT BUT CHOSEN TO REMAIN ANONYMOUS AND SHE CONFIRMED LARISSA’S ACCOUNT AND SAID HE’S DOING THE SAME THING TO ME AND SHE REFUSED TO BELIEVE THEM. SHE SENT ALL OF THE GYMNASTS OUT OF THE ROOM EXCEPT LARISSA, PICKED UP A REPORT FORM AND SAID I COULD SIGN THIS, BUT THERE WILL BE SERIOUS CONSEQUENCES FOR YOU AND LARRY IF YOU FILE THIS. AND SO LARISSA BACKED DOWN. KATHY THEN CALLED LARRY TO TELL HIM WHAT LARISSA HAD SAID AND SENT LARISSA BACK FOR CONTINUED TREATMENT. SHE CONTINUED TO BE SUBJECTED TO MORE SEXUAL ABUSE. ALMOST EVERY KNOWN VICTIM OF LARRY NASSAR CAME AFTER THAT REPORT IN 1997. BUT THE COLLEGE RECEIVED ADDITIONAL REPORTS OF ABUSE IN THREE DIFFERENT ATHLETIC DEPARTMENTS DURING 1998, ’99 AND 2000. THERE ARE ALSO AT LEAST THREE PSYCHIATRISTS THAT RECEIVED REPORTS OF ABUSE, ONE OF THEM BEING KYLE STEPHENS’ REPORT AND REPORTS FROM TWO OTHER ROWERS. NOT A SINGLE ONE OF THEM REPORTED, NOT ONE.>>NOT ONE REPORTED THE CRIME, THE ALLEGED CRIME AT THAT POINT.>>NOT ONE.>>WHAT ACCOUNTABILITY — LET’S START WITH MSU. NOW THE UNIVERSITY PRESIDENT IS STEPPING DOWN WITH A STATEMENT THAT DOESN’T TAKE FULL RESPONSIBILITY. SHE BASICALLY SAYS, YOU KNOW, IN ANY SORT OF SITUATION LIKE THIS, PEOPLE ARE GOING TO HOLD SOMEBODY LIKE ME ACCOUNTABLE, SO OH WELL. HERE’S THE STATEMENT. THE LAST YEAR AND A HALF HAS BEEN VERY DIFFICULT FOR THE VICTIMS OF LARRY NASSAR, FOR THE UNIVERSITY COMMUNITY AND FOR ME PERSONALLY. TO THE SURVIVORS I CAN NEVER SAY ENOUGH AND I AM SO SORRY THAT A TRUSTED, RENOWNED PHYSICIAN — HERE IT IS. AS TRAGEDIES ARE POLITICIZED, BLAME IS INEVITABLE. AS PRESIDENT IT’S ONLY NATURAL THAT I AM THE FOCUS OF THIS ANGER. DOES THAT SOUND LIKE TAKING ACCOUNTABILITY TO YOU?>>NOT AT ALL.>>BUT AS APPALLING AS THAT STATEMENT IS, THE BOARD OF TRUST TRUSTEES HAS BEEN SIGNIFICANTLY WORSE. THE VICE CHAIR CAME OUT SHORTLY AFTER I CAME FORWARD AND CALLED US AMBULANCE CHASERS WHO WERE LOOKING FOR A PAYDAY. HE RECENTLY SAID NO LEADERSHIP AT MSU SHOULD HAVE TO RESIGN BECAUSE THERE WOULD BE TOO MUCH COLLATERAL DAMAGE.>>WHO SAID THAT?>>VICE CHAIR FERGUSON ON THE MSU BOARD OF TRUSTEES. HE THEN SAID WE NEED TO REMEMBER THERE’S MORE GOING ON THAN JUST THIS NASSAR THING AND WE NEED TO LOOK AT THE FULL SCOPE OF MSU BECAUSE SIMON DID A REALLY GOOD JOB RAISING FUNDS FOR THEIR BASKETBALL STADIUM.>>WHAT HAPPENED TO KATHY KLAJES.>>SHE WAS ALLOWED TO RETIRE WITH FULL PENSION AND MSU HAS REPEATEDLY REFUSED TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE WAY THAT SHE HANDLED THAT REPORT OF ABUSE WAS INAPPROPRIATE AND THAT THERE WERE DEVASTATING CONSEQUENCES BECAUSE OF IT.>>AND THEN THERE’S THE QUESTION OF USA GYMNASTICS. USA GYMNASTICS, WHICH IS AN ORGANIZATION TO WHICH SO MANY PARENTS ENTRUSTED THEIR EXTREMELY TALENTED, HOPEFUL, ASPIRATIONAL YOUNG GIRLS, THINKING THAT THEY WOULD BE WELL LOOKED AFTER. I WANT TO GET TO THEM, BUT HAVE THEY CONTACTED ANY OF YOU?>>THEY HAVE NOT.>>NO.>>NO.>>NOT AFTER YOU CAME FORWARD WITH YOUR STORY, YOUR TESTIMONIALS?>>NO. IN FACT THE ENTIRE REASON THIS STORY CAME OUT IS BECAUSE THERE WERE SEVERAL OTHER ATHLETES WHO BLEW THE WHISTLE ON THE FAILURE TO REPORT SEXUAL ABUSE IN GENERAL WITHIN USAG. THEY HAD A POLICY OF NOT REPORTING ABUSE. THEY HAD BURIED THE FILES ON 54 MEMBER COACHES IN A TEN-YEAR PERIOD ALLOWING THESE COACHES TO HOP FROM GYM TO GYM. DIRECTOR PENNY DEFENDED THIS POLICY UNDER OATH SAYING THEY HAD TO HAVE THIS POLICY TO, QUOTE UNQUOTE, AVOID A WITCH HUNT. NONE OF THOSE GYMNASTS THAT WERE ABUSED BY COACHES THAT WERE ALLOWED TO HOP FROM GYM TO GYM WERE EV–>>I AM PROFOUNDLY SADDENED THAT A SINGLE ATHLETE WAS HURT. I WILL NOT WAIVER ON MY COMMIT NOENT FOCUS EACH AND EVERY DAY ON OUR ORGANIZATION’S HIGHEST PRIORITY, THE SAFETY, HEALTH AND WELL-BEING OF OUR ATHLETES. WE WILL CREATE A POWER THAT SUPPORTS THEM AND IT IS MY HOPE THAT EVERYTHING WE DO GOING FORWARD MAKES THIS VERY CLEAR. THANK YOU ALL. * HEY! * Bee to hive for that honey you know * * a sweet tasty bowl * of that get up and go * put in the good and the good will grow * * good goes around and around and around HEY! * honey to the O is the yum in yo bowl * * playing around that’s how we roll * * start with the good and watch good flow * * good goes around and around and around HEY! * Speaking of good, you’ll love New Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheerios. I made a vow to love you faithfully. And to keep you safe. How the hell are you, Ana?

  1. I Will Say This…None Of Nassars Victims Are Ugly…They All Hot In My Opinion…Wonder How Many Secretly Enjoyed it?

  2. and the cops dont get any blame in this sad saga just put all the blame on the university

    That's america for you

  3. First let me state that in no way any sort of abuse is acceptable. But… Shocking !! 156 girls being sexually abused. All thought it's part of the therapy. Come on! Not ONE of them went to their parents?? Not one??? I cannot believe that. Were they worried that their careers would be over, so they took the crap? Just like in Hollywood, they took abuse in order to further their careers. Now they are crying. Yes the SOB deserves more then he will get, but they should of spoken up when it was happening.

  4. Denhollander for office please . ! These beautiful ladies exhibit a poise and intelligence beyond their years. I’m sorry that survivors of Nassar were further victimized by MSU and USA Gymnatics. Awful , despicable , shameful .

  5. I don't know that Nassar is the worst pedophile in American history. That infamous label, imho, goes to that convicted pediatrician from Delaware who sexually assaulted his child patients including little babies.

  6. This is just really upsetting, as a young girl in society I am becoming increasingly afraid of what my future could possibly entail.

  7. When I first heard about this going on, I became speechless. The doctor is a monster and may no one show him any sympathy. Now, every time I watch a gymnastics competition on NBC, this will be on the back of my mind.

  8. I love how Rachael dose not mince her words when it comes to the acts that were committed against these girls. She is so blunt rightly so and I hope that it shocks the people ,the ones behind the scenes still to blame for this, to there core.

  9. As a teacher, I'm a mandated reporter. Social workers, doctors, nurses, and I think hospital staff are as well. That means we can get into legal trouble if there are clear signs of abuse that we ignore or sweep under the rug. It was my impression that ANYONE who works with children are mandated reporters. It's extremely concerning that a huge organization like this would claim not to know that.

  10. All parents should learn from this tragedy!! First, NO dream is worth sending your children to live away from you! Second, train ur children from a very young age to recognize and report to you what is inappropriate!! Not blaming parents….but!!! I can't imagine trusting an organization to protect my children….

  11. And they just let them molest you I am sorry I would not keep it quite they must be all stupid or they liked it and just came out when it all came to light wtf I am sorry that it happened but man why would u just let it happen to u guys I have been molested

  12. USAG had a history of burying allegations from several coaches she said so how could the Karolyis know . Nassar reported to USAG not them . Many people were deceived because it was done under the guise of medical treatment, an easy thing for a doctor to explain away.

  13. Is there like a secrete pedophile club that gives these men jobs? I’m hopeful that times are changing.

  14. Absolutely inconceivable that the enablers, those who knew and looked the other way have not been properly held accountable nor have taken any ownership in the responsibility they had in ensuring these young women were safe. They are as guilty as Larry Nassar and maybe worse because they could have prevented and stopped the abuse and chose not to. How do those people sleep at night? I am appalled.

  15. I've worked for colleges for 15 years. Many high paid staff spend most their time selfishly securing their easy paychecks with "just a bit of harmless truth manipulation", and they feel justified. Some will read this on company time and they still won't understand how they are slowly selling themselves to the ancient combined evil. Are you ready to stop your little "innocent" white lies? Do you get it yet? Do you see the fruits of your combined little lies?

  16. As a gymnast I can’t even put into words how angry this makes me! These girls are truly amazing for speaking out and staying strong despite all that they have been through

  17. Cathy and Lou Ana Simon you disgusting GRUBS. I would love to see you strung up by your intestines above an ants nest. Strung so gently that your lives are prolonged as long as possible.

    Who is worse he who slits the babies throat or he who watches.?

  18. USA Gymnastics act like how the Catholic Church dealt with pedophile priests. Deny and move them to another location.

  19. Now, why did she go and marry a guy that looks just like the perp? https://people.com/sports/former-gymnast-who-claims-dr-larry-nassar-molested-her-my-family-is-my-safe-place/

  20. Poor Mattie. For years I couldnt figure out why she disappeared from the gymnastics scene. Now we know. Poor girl. She was an incredible gymnast…she wouldve(shouldve) been in London and UCLA.
    P.S–Rachel is a freaking HERO!!!!!!!

  21. Such articulate, successful and fearless women. I hope they continue growing stronger and having happy lives.

  22. Mattie is right in saying that Nassar had no remorse. He cannot be trusted in any way. Will people support the Olympics in the same way, or will that change? The athletes and their families paid a high price for involvement in a sport.

  23. АНАНИСТ ТОТ С МОЛЧАНИЯ ЯГНЯТ МУЖ КЛАРИС СТАРЛИНГ ОХАНСКАЯ КЛЯЧА ФО НЕ ВЫ И ЗАЙЦЫ ЖЕРТВЫ ВАС БОЛЬШЕНЕТ В КЛИПЕ

  24. I see the Kathy Klages disgusting excuse for a woman was charged in August 2018 with lying to police about ever having any knowledge about the Nassar abuse prior to 2016, and plead not guilty. I can’t find any further info about a trial, I’m guessing then that it hasn’t happened yet?

  25. Mattie was one of the most beautiful gymnasts ever, and now she is a strong, beautiful woman… wish her all the success in the world!

  26. ивановой крысы голова на табуретке отрублена квартиру купила королва

  27. губы лося за дичь кенеди семью королёва кормит креветками и кукурузой вареной

  28. шалько не приставай к омеге волки королёвым альфой дельфинами олени шальки и ты рыжая обезьяна они в городе и мюлер семья убиты горбачовы

  29. её захавали следующих шальков оленей на севере

  30. поддубная вера хотела утопить с поддубным юрой носиловали вальтером в газете украли в хате кунтий ксении поддубной натальей передавал убийство с никрофильством

  31. снайпер негр карачовой нагнибедой скала _нигетосы пидарасы

  32. Very heart breaking situation for these amazing talented gymnastic girls! Megan Kelly you are so annoying, you bug everyone. Get off TV!

  33. what will be great is if Simone Biles makes the 2020 team and right after she quits and makes an impact statement towards the Olympic committee that would be awesome!!!

  34. Why was everyone defending this man like he’s Jesus? Molesters don’t have to look sinister. People are even their friends. They can bring in grant and donation funds. They can have any career. It’s not like they’re all in their moms dark basement looking all pedophiley

  35. When I had to see a new doctor at my regular Gyno’s clinic he behaved inappropriately. I talked to the head nurse later that day and he was GONE from that clinic a week later. THATS how this should’ve gone down!

  36. If only they would listen to little girls!!!! This should have ended many years ago!!! They also need to castrate the offenders. I'm sure it would happen a-lot less!!! Protect the child!!!

  37. USA gymnastics, US Olympics and MSU need to be shut down. Every person who ignored the reports should be locked up. What a shame these organizations are TRASH.

  38. Who made the 69 dislikes ? this is such an important topic!!! There are even family members, men&women, who have sick behaviours, touching children in inappropriate areas! We all need to act more eyes-open!!!

  39. I’m so conflicted about this. These girls don’t deserve sexual abuse or exploitation, not in the least. But I must wonder if the physicality of the sport involving the female figure isn’t a huge contributing factor. I bet this is rampant in the sport internationally. Young vulnerable girls desperate to please coaches make perfect prey for power hungry predators.

  40. Are these people that knew going to be prosecuted? Knowing it's going on and no doing anything is as bad as the crime itself.

  41. One guy is a convicted pedo, and some other women criminally covered it up – laws be damned, we must satiate the anger of the mob. Obviously the only solution is to blow up the entire world. (CHEERS, CLAPS AND WHISTLES)

  42. This is a hoax. These gymnast are secret trannies. The #MeToo movement is a tranny movement. Megan Kelley is a secret tranny. Stop lying to the masses.

  43. It is amazing that they came forward and shared that horrible experience with people. You think I am afraid people will look down at me or victimize me if I spoke up but when I see these women I do not see victims instead I see strong people. It did not take any of their self worth.
    Thank you for your courage.

  44. STOP👏🏾CALLING👏🏾LARRY👏🏾A👏🏾DOCTOR👏🏾 he enabled more pain than “healing” and should have his medical licensed removed

  45. Money & fame that for no one report anything..sport is a big business..gymnasts are just slaves..objects..new age slavery..😭😭😭😭a tragedy..

  46. Kyle Stephens is incredibly articulate and brave. If you haven't seen her address the judge AND the perpetrator, it's here on You Tube. You will be amazed. 👏👏👏

  47. I feel so bad for these girls but in addition to the actual perpetrators i do hold their parents accountable as well. As a dad i know there must have been some abandonment of parental protection to so blindly trust USAG…I have to feel there was a little bit of "my daughter will be a star" in effect, that led to these girls feeling they had to go along.

  48. I am sure its happening everywhere. Parents need to be more involved and pro active and we have to stop idolizing stardom.

  49. USAG needs to be disbanded and decertified by the IOC(which,BTW is not exactly the bastion of high moral standing-Juan Antonio Sammasex).

  50. USAGymnastics needs to shutter its doors forever. A new organization needs to be created to replace this corrupt organization. No one who formerly worked for USAG should work in this field again. Barred for life. That includes the Koroli "Farm" and MSU.

  51. I still cant believe this happened!! This is a massive embarassment to the US Sports fraternity not just the US Gymnastic Team. I say jail the Karolys too. They knew it was going on and they ignored it because they wanted medals. Jail them!!

  52. Basically what she's describing is what happens EVERY time I go to HR about my boss bullying me. He can't be. He must just have bad management skills. You need to be sure you want to do this before you go forward, you'll lose your friends and connections.

    I left. I filed three reports against him (two internal and one federal through EEOC) annnnd….have yet to get any response on any of them (filed in 2018).
