Senator’s ‘Frozen’ ringtone brings congressional hearing to a halt
Sounds like he’s not letting it go.
Even Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kans.) has a soft spot for Princess Elsa: In a totally surreal moment, the 78-year-old senator’s Frozen ringtone went off during this morning’s Senate Finance Committee hearing on U.S. Tariff Policy.
The strains of smash hit song “Let It Go” interrupted Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack in the middle of his testimony, causing Roberts to complain, “Aw, come on,” as he silenced his phone. “Just let it go mister,” he added. “Sorry about that.”
Ringtones never bothered us anyway.
