Kanye -- Comparing Matt Lauer to a Child Abuser????

11/24/2010 2:33 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kanye West went on another trademark rant last night -- unleashing about everything from Taylor Swift to George W. Bush ... and even took what seemed to be a serious shot at Matt Lauer.

During his concert in New York last night, Kanye brought up the "Today" show drama again (and his allegations that Lauer ran a clip from his interview with Kanye out of context) -- and made the following comment:

"Matt Lauer's not a bad guy I'm sure ... but if you are a child that's being abused by your parent ... or you are a girl being abused by your boyfriend ... the greatest win that you could ever have is for that person to hit you in public. You SEE! YOU SEE! I TOLD YOU!"

For the record -- Matt and the "Today" show insist they did NOTHING wrong.

As for Kanye, he also ranted about the infamous Taylor Swift moment at the VMAs -- saying, "If I wasn't drunk, I woulda been on stage longer."

He continued, "Taylor never came to my defense in any interview .. and rode it and rode it."

Check out the clip -- pretty crazy stuff.

A first rate delusional dumbsh*t. Why do people still pay attention to him is beyond my understanding.

I am sure the people that came to his concert did not pay to listen to him rant about himself for 30 minutes. If he keeps that up, he will loose what few fans he has left.

Good thing he is going back to arrogant jerk-mode, I was starting to think he really felt bad for what he did to Taylor Swift. The best part of all of this is that his music sucks -- this guy is a has-been. Enough already

I can't stand Kanye. He's a complete idiot. I agree with the person who said the death of his mother should've given him some humility. Who supports this guy's music??? He's garbage!

Why are people failing to admit some of what he says are actually true? People just love to hate for the sake of hating on someone whom has made some negative mistakes in the public eye. As if everyone else is perfectly flawless and Kanye is the only a-hole in the world. Perhaps it is the general public sending their criticisms, about Kanye, that should get over themselves. He isn't the first person to be full of himself, and he is guaranteed to not be the last.

TMZ dont like me    

This really getting sad now. Obviously, the poor boy is starting to crack under the hot, "Flashing Lights" of fame. Ye really needs help. Probably should have sought the services of a good mental health professional, right after his momma died.

If he wants to ramble incoherently for 10 minutes, maybe he should talk about how, with limited skills and talent, he's the luckiest black man living today on the face of the earth!
