Kanye gets visibly irritated when Lauer asks him to take a look at a clip of the interview with President Bush in which he speaks about Kanye's remarks being "one of the most disgusting moments of my presidency." "I didn't need you guys to show me the tape in order to prompt my emotions," Kanye said. "Y'all don't have to do the TV stuff with me, this is reality.. I don't need all the jazz," he continued, before asking someone off-camera to "be quiet for a second" while he spoke.

It didn't stop there. When Kanye spoke about the Taylor Swift incident -- and in true Today Show fashion, a video clip of it played simultaneously -- Kanye lashed out again. "Yo, how am I supposed to talk if you're going to run this thing in the middle of while I'm talking?" Kanye asked annoyingly. "I'm hearing it while I'm trying to talk. Please don't let that happen again. It's like ridiculous."
