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.

Ladys and Gents he has officially gone off the deep end. Hey TMZ where's a poll at on this clip? Has he just gone over board and ruined things for himself or is this his justice to get what he wants off his back. I approved how he acted on the Today show i get that. But WTF if i was at this concern i want to hear the man do his thing no be his therapist.

#70: Kanye is an ancient Aborigine name that translates as "loser" or "prick". The only reason he is here, the tribe cast him out as an infant. He hitched a boat ride and then his poor mom found him hiding in a box of vegetables and adopted him.

Kanye, man... I was with you up until this. I thought you were genuinely sorry about what you did to Taylor. As a human, we all make mistakes, especially when we're going through hard stuff like deaths in the family, but at NO time should you have expected Taylor to defend you after you wronged her by ruining what should have been a very precious moment for her. She didn't owe you anything after that, and now here you are making a victim of her again? Did you learn nothing from the whole experience? Granted that what you did was probably the best thing that could have happened to Taylor's career, but don't hate her for playing the victim card when she had every right to do it. Put the blame where it belongs--with yourself for creating the whole mess in the first place. Do the right thing and leave Taylor alone. It's not her fault your career and public image are going down the tubes.

Kanye is a lyrical genius!! Definitely one of the greatest rappers of all time!! I dnt condone what he did to Taylor but what he said was true!! I think when the numbers are in a he is sitting at about 600k i think that all of the "Ye" fans are gonna have a toast for the haters!! Because there is no bad publicity!! Yall are just making him Relevant! S/O to Bush for the free promo!!

suck this junk    

1. Taylor Swift WRITES all her OWN songs that she sings - and she actually PLAYS her own instruments, i.e. piano and guitar. She's won more awards in her few years than Kanye will ever dream about because he's a loser, no-talent monkey.

2. Kanye West can't play an instrument if his life depended on it. Yea, we saw him hammer out a few notes on a tiny Casio keyboard onstage at the VMAs but I'm sure someone just taught the monkey that trick. He also can't sing his way out of a paper bag. Kanye, your music stinks just as bad as your nasty sh*t does. Quit blaming the rest of the world for your non-talented misgivings and get on with it and commit an MCHAMMER.
Just go away and file the eventual bankruptcy you'll be forced to do anyhow in a year or so.

Um what? time to adjust your meds again
Although its a fair representation of the last rant i heard from
Kanye i believe he needs to relax he is entitled to his opinions
he just doesn't know how or when to coherently express them.
he has a bad case on diarrhea of the mouth seems like every time he opens it every thing in his head rushes out , he needs to organize his thoughts and pick an appropriate time to speak
if he wants to be taken seriously.

Kanye is a very sick, twisted, wacko that needs to be locked up. His verbal assaults are non-stop, starting with the outrageous attack on Taylor Swift. Let us just stop reporting on his crazy antics and maybe he will go away. I cannot imagine anyone attending one of his concerts or buying his music (if that is what you call it).
