Hoffa Admits He's Adopted

April 1, 2011: James Hoffa today, appearing on The View, admitted that he was actually adopted, and is not the son of James R. "Jimmy" Hoffa.

Hoffa, sobbing as he departed from remarks held up on cue cards by his Assistant, Leo Deaner, told Barbara Walters: "I can't keep it up, the lie that I am the son of Jimmy Hoffa.

"He built the Central States Pension Fund. I gave it away. He build the master freight contract. I wrecked it. He worked hard for members, I golf with their employers. I ask that God forgive me. And maybe some working Teamsters will too. A few at least."

Walters then gave him a hug, and offered him a job as a guest host. Hoffa, still sobbing, asked if it paid more than the $368,000 he got from Teamsters members last year.

Walters said "I'll get back to you on that."

It all happened on April 1, also known as April Fools Day.
