Not So Fast: Hannity Not Leaving New York Quite Yet (VIDEO)

Fox News host Sean Hannity isn’t about to pack up and leave New York in a huff for a more conservative-friendly home — yet.

Hannity threatened to relocate on his radio show Monday, after New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) said last week that there’s no place for “extreme conservatives” in the state. But he told fellow Fox News host Greta Van Susteren on Tuesday that an immediate change isn’t exactly feasible.

“I think people might have interpreted it that I’m leaving the next day. If I could I probably would, but I like to consider myself a responsible person,” he said, adding that by his count over 100 people depend on jobs at his radio and television shows to pay their bills.

Hannity said he and his wife are seriously discussing leaving what he called the “United Socialist State of New York,” however.

“It’s like I’m facilitating the robbery of the hard-earned money that I’m making, and I’m not gonna do it anymore,” he said. “As soon as I am able, sometime probably when my son graduates from high school, I’m getting out of here as quick as I can.”
