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.

Sounds almost like all TMZ's rants about Carrie Prejean or the Palins.

tmz, don't be ridiculous. lauer = the media. the media "hitting" him in public = exposing the truth of the biased media (twisting stories, forcing statements/apologies/etc. etc.) IT'S CALLED A METAPHOR

He's lucky she didn't trash him in her interviews. What a douchebag.

I used to like him. His songs were good and he seemed like a cool guy. This past year or so he's become a real douchebag.

I couldn't watch the whole thing. Hopefully he ends up poor and in the gutter somewhere. He sees only in color.

Seriously. Why were people applauding? All I heard him say was,"I'm so awesome, I'm a god, everyone should bow down to me and never question what I have said or done." In reality he should have said,"I'm a talentless bag of douche who samples others music and claims that I AM CREATIVE AND ORIGINAL. I talk **** about everyone but when someone says something about me, they are in the wrong." GO AWAY KANYE.

What a tiresome little narcissist...any talent he has displayed in the past is overwhelmed by his juvenile, petulant attitude. This has nothing to do with race...Kanye is a spoiled little boy who can't accept responsibility for his actions. It's time to excommunicate him from the news cycle.

the worst part of this is that we read the articles about him, and comment on them. let's all just concentrate on artists worthy of being heard, then we'll stop having to see his face everywhere.... ignorance is our best shot at being rid of his pompous rants.
