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.

Wow... EVERYONE IS STUPID!! Obviously he's not calling the guy a child abuser -- he is simply saying it is a metaphor!! (not a very good one, granted)

There are so many double standards. Its like society expects people to go to college and read books and understand those books, yet the same people that read these books are pulling things out of context and acting like they dont know what a metaphor is. Honestly, are you really that stupid or you're just pretending to be?

And f^ck Taylor Swift! Get off her tip!! BEYONCE DID HAVE THE BEST YEAR OF THE DECADE -- FACT!!! So, why are you all defending her again??????????

Spoiled, self centered, ego maniac, ingrate. The more he opens his mouth, the more he shows his true colors. He really is his own worst enemy. Black list the punk and be down with him.

dear kanye - it's really sad when your life is so uneventful you have to bring up moments that people have already forgotten about, like matt lauer's comments and taylor swift. i mean, yeah, kanye, now that you mention it, i'm getting all fired up for you! actually no, it makes me want to stab myself in the eye and then stab you in the eye(s). at least when you're blind you won't realize how retarded you look. to us. the rest of the world.

Interesting how he understands George Bush, he didnt defend him, but really went on about him in a positive way. Am I the only one that say that??

Kayne is an idiot! Why should Taylor Swiff come to HIS defence when SHE was the one wronged??? As for the Today show interview, it speaks for it's self, try watching it again Kayne and you'll see it was you who dug the hole deeper for the Sh*t that comes out of your mouth. Just quit while you are ahead, stop whining!

Kanyes a bitch with an over inflated ego. If you look up Narcissist in the dictionary, theres a picture of kanyes bloated face next to the definition.

Narcissistic personality disorder is a condition in which there is an inflated sense of self-importance and an extreme
preoccupation with one's self.

OMG PEOPLE! Give me a break, President Bush did not and was NOT soley responsible for the lack of response during Hurricane Katrina! The local authoritys should have acted faster. He had to run a whole country and fight a war, which by the way, was necessary regardless if you disagree. Get over it. You think Bush was bad. Wait until you see what the "Great One" does before he gets booted out of office... you just wait. He ain't on your side and he ain't on mine.

Addicted to the spotlight. Back to being the center of his little world, Kanye always lacks perspective.
