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.

did anyone watch the whole video???? This article is ridiculous!!! They twisted all Kanye words. The media manipulate those who does not search for the truth by themselves. I'm not a big Kanye fan, I'm a much bigger Taylor Swift fan but I can't justify whats going on right now... I can't believe how much people hate this guy who honestly isn't all that bad

So let's look at it this way. Kanye originally did what America wanted and apologized a thousand times for the Taylor stunt. Now he is playing the "bad boy" card and apparently taking his obvious fake apology back. He is only doing what will make him more money...that is all. If people hating him makes him money then that is what he is going to do. i am sure he'll cross another line eventually and start apologizing again, but it will still be BS!!!

I'm sorry for the loss of his mother...but, everyone today thinks everything that comes out of their mouth is interesting.
well, you're not. If you love him...then read on, but his behavior at the VMA's was sooo Ol' Dirty Bastard (RIP).

He is a nut job. Seriously, he can't be all there in the head. And he thinks because he is an "artist" he can do/say whatever he wants? Give me a break. The guy is seriously cracked. And it's all those people (the numbers he mentions, even though he says he doesn't talk about the numbers) that keep him up in the spot light. Don't buy his music, don't flaunt his stuff...and maybe, hopefully he will go away. He seriously thinks he is some kind of god. Ridiculous. Makes me a little sick.
