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.

I heard Kanye West's new cd is not selling so much so he tries to create a new feud with Taylor Swift to keep his name in the news.That's lame.

he just needs to ,like, go away already. Seriously what is his problem?I mean, I like some of his music and everything, but putting up with his a-hole attitude is just not worth it. I honestly cannot believe that he still has die hard fans. He is obviously screwed up in the head. It's scary that there are people like him out in the world.

What a waste of a human life this piece of garbage is. Once he started making money he figured he'd 'tell it like it is'... well douche bag when your broke and you have no friends.. you can tell it like it is to the other people in the welfare office.

YOUR GARBAGE and you need to go away because really no one cares what you think.

Just read all comments up to #379. Did a count, 25 posters out of the 379 supported Kanye. I excluded some posters such as "Y do he got" and "Yidmash" and just a couple of other supporters not named here. I excluded these posters because the comments were either, (among other things), repeatedly nonsensical, racist, and in some cases actually violent in nature. Based on comments, two prevalent observations: 1) Some, if not most, in support of Kanye presented that support in a primitive manner. Obviously, perfection is not what is required when submitting to a forum of this type. Sensical without the trash talk would be good though. 2) If only 25 out of 379 posters support Kanye, then this should be his wake up call to get the message and go get some help for the issues at hand.

Wow...he is such an idiot. Sing if you must, but please don't ever speak in public again. This guy is seriously one of the stupidest people I have ever heard talk. Why should Taylor Swift ever defend him?? He insulted her during an award show... saying she didn't deserve an award. His opinion as to who deserves an award isn't more valuable than her fans. He is a racist! He doesn't like white people. He is just mad that people know it now! And seriously every time you use the f-word your IQ goes down a few points.
