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.

Why isn't this lunatic locked away somewhere??? He is obviously dangerous to himself and others - he is simply not anywhere close to being in touch with reality. PLEASE KANYE - GET SOME REAL HELP - YOU NEED IT!

Dam, everyone wit their regurgitated comments on Kanye. Kanye is an incredible artist, has an INCREDIBLE album out, and said what he wanted to at his own show. At his OWN SHOW. Nobody has to watch it, but everyone is. Nobody had to run this footage over to TMZ, but they did. Much love and respect to Kanye West.

Kanye why would ANYONE come to your deffense?? What you did to Taylor was WRONG in every sense of the word. YOU STOLE FROM HER WHAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN A WONDERFUL MEMORY, YOU ALONE TURNED THAT WONDERFUL MEMORY TO A NIGHTMARE...why in the h.e.l.l. would she come to your defense???!!!

Matt Lauer DID NOTHING WRONG...he did an interview. If you felt he took something out of context then straighten that out, quit acting like an entitled, arrogant, obnoxious spoiled brat. You embarrass your sweet mother every time you act like lose fans, you damage your reputation and your career even further, and people look down on you....NOT because of your skin color (as I'm sure you would say I'm trying to say)...but because of your behavior.

There are classy ways to deal with issues, ways that include dignity and self choose not to employ those methods though. Instead you throw temper tantrums and act like a it any wonder no one takes you seriously?? No, it's not.

He is a disgusting man who needs consistent public attention for his extreme LACK of talent and incredible ego. He is very insecure, immature, and ignorant. Why the public feeds into his stupidity, I'll never understand. For an adult, he conducts himself like a chidlish fool.

Taylor Swift got famous because of Kayne, if he did not do what he did, she still would have been trying to have a career.

He is the best rapper out there together with Jay-Z and Eminem.
Matt lauer is an idiot.

Can anyone say mental illness?

For a guy who says he's quite particular about the words he uses, he may want to keep a dictionary handy. It's "vilify" not "villinize" and his words lead the Katrina vilification Bush.

Full of himself and stupid... he should just sing and leave the discourse to the rest of us.
