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.

Kanye West is an "IDIOT"!!! He has not yet learned to shut his pie hole. Every time he goes on one of his rants he only proves how stupid he really is. He needs to go away...

He should change his name from kanye to lucifer. Originally, lucifer was an angel of god...however he thought he was too good to bow down to god b/c he was made from fire. He was too full of himself as well and to proud. Lucifer thought he was all that just as kanye does. Eventually the angels in heaven kicked his ass 'cause he wouldn't bow down and that's how he ended up in hell and we now call him SATAN! Coincidence? Kanye should learn this lesson.

Kanye West is an egomaniacal jerk. The next time Kanye sees a racist will be when he looks into a mirror.

Why in the world would this idiot think that Taylor Swift should have come to his defense?? If ya rob a bank, the president of the bank doesn't speak for your defense...you rape someone, the victim doesn't stand up for her rapist...you treat someone with disrespect someone, humilate them and then think they are going to speak up and defend you. Kanye is a freaking idiot...I can't wait until he fades off in to the night never to be see or heard from again...then we can all go out and celebrate the peace.

Thank you TMZ for proving everything Kanye said, this website needs a villian and you guys are giving them one. The man did NOT compare Matt Lauer to anything; he gave an analogy to show people what its like when you tell people things but they just don't wanna believe you. Wow is TMZ really this uneducated or was this as he said solely to rake in the negative comments by making the title to this post a blatant lie. Either way congratulations on helping damn near every commenting person look like a fool, bashing and hating someone they don't even personally know, and then the reason they are bashing him isn't even a true one; damn shame. I guess no one else raised their hand in school and asked why to anything; which be the equivalent to people these days; either don't care but then comment; ya pure ignorance, or just they just like hating Kanye

I love kanye!!! He is a true genius! He plays the role of the angry black man so well, that I believe his true calling is in acting. However, Taylor Swift is just a child. He needs to have some respect and leave her alone.

Shame The Devil    

Everyone on this board is full of crap. Kanye is an Artist. A true Artist who will be remembered loooong after your dumb comments. So much hate for him? All of you act as though you are judges. Condemning him for always saying what's on his mind and what's in his heart? I brand you ALL cowards. All of you have had something nasty to say about him. Why? Because he has COURAGE to say what he thinks and feels to the world and in the spotlight, while most of you only have courage if you can hide behind your keyboard. Bunch of losers. lol, lol, lol, lol, lol, lol, lol, Die slow in the subliminal guilt of your cowardice.

When will this utter and USELESS Douche-Bag just simply SHUT-UP and GO AWAY! He seems to think is COLORFUL COMMENTARY is necessary to either defend himself or correct his wrongs, but all he does is just continues to dig his grave deeper and deeper. Unfortunately, what is going to happen now is that his newest release is going to be a Billboard hit bowing at #1 and then we're going to be saturated with his inane endless babble and talk in the press. Kanye just proves over and over again, that being talented does not make you intelligent in any sense of the word! He just shows that even if you have an education, it does not make you smart - obviously! The Douche-Bag is just another Douche-bag with fame backing him! UNFORTUNATELY!
