Gov. Andrew Cuomo's dismissive critique of conservative Republicans as having "no place" in the Empire State may send popular talk shot host Sean Hannity packing.

On Albany's The Capitol Pressroom radio show last Friday, the Democratic governor called out Republicans who are "right-to-life, pro-assault weapons, anti-gay."

"If that's who they are, they have no place in the state of New York because that's not who New Yorkers are," he railed.

Hannity responded Monday, telling his Fox News Channel television program fans he's fed up not only with Cuomo's dismissive line-in-the-sand — but also with New York's sky-high taxes.

“Now I want to tell you something – I was born and raised in New York,” Hannity said, according to a video of the program on Breitbart news.

“I want you to know that and I can’t wait to get out of here. I really can’t. I don’t want to pay their 10-percent state tax anymore. I live in the second-highest property taxed county in the entire country in Nassau County.

"I can’t wait to sell my house to somebody who wants it."

The Fox News personality said he also "can't wait to pay no state income tax down in Florida or Texas," though he hasn't decided which state to adopt as his new home.

"... but I’m leaning Florida because I like the water and I like to fish," he said.

Hannity joined the New York-based Fox network in 1996, and as host of Premiere Radio Networks' "The Sean Hannity Show," is syndicated to more than 500 stations, boasting 13.5 million listeners.

Hannity's threatened exit follows those of fellow conservative radio hosts Rush Limbaugh, who left New York for Florida, and Glenn Beck, who fled the Empire State for Texas.

“Gov. Cuomo, I’m going to leave and I’m taking all of my money with me – every single solitary penny,” he said.

“And by the way governor, because I work here – there’s a whole bunch of people that work for me and benefit because I do two shows. And I guess maybe some of them will be out of work, governor. I’m sure you’ll take care of them.”
