Senator’s ‘Frozen’ ringtone interrupts hearing, asks to ‘let it go’
Senator Pat Roberts was listening during a hearing on Congress and U.S. Tariff Policy when his phone broke into song
Disney’s animated film “Frozen” catapulted to success partly because of its infectious theme song, which has been played more than 400 million times on YouTube, and now, during a Congressional hearing in the United States.
Senator Pat Roberts was listening as the Agriculture Secretary spoke during a hearing on Congress and U.S. Tariff Policy, news website Mashable reported, when his phone broke into song.
“Aw come on,” Roberts sighed as onlookers giggled about his choice for a ring tone, the almost iconic “Frozen” theme song: “Let it go.”
Lost for words, Roberts resorted to the lyrics of the song asking the speaker to “Let it go, mister” which lightened the mood even further.
According to his website, the 78-year old Kansas senator has five grandchildren, which may explain why the politician has the Disney classic for a ringtone.
