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 is a worthless sack of ****! He's only trying to keep himself relevant by making all these accusations.

He is such an idiot. Why in the world would Taylor Swift come to his defense when he ruined her experience at the awards show. As far as the Matt Lauer thing... he's just as bad as Sarah Palin... blaming the interviewer for asking tough questions and trying to hold you accountable. Don't go on the TV show to promote yourself if you don't want to have to answer questions. You'd be doing us all a favor.

Kanye is a douche. But I'd like to point out that your headline for that clip, kind of proves him right in his rant.

So, he's admitting to being a child and/or girl. Good to hear it!

Why, in God's name, would Taylor Swift come to his defense? SHE'S the victim.

Give him some cheese.

Dude. You might think sh-it like will keep you relevant in the public eye and all but seriously, it only makes you look like a spoiled-brat-whiner. Stop being so bitchie, girlfriend and grow a pair. Chill. Keep the whine in a glass, have some class, and the hating will pass.

(Ok, that last bit was idiot)
