— -- Even senators have embarrassing ringtones on their phones.

During a Senate Finance Committee hearing about Congress and U.S. Tariff Policy today, Sen. Pat Roberts’ cellphone interrupted Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack while he was speaking.

And it wasn’t any ordinary ringtone that rang through the committee room. It was Disney’s hit song "Let It Go" from the movie "Frozen"

“Aw, come on,” Roberts, R-Kansas, said as the tune rang out from his cellphone.

“Just let it go mister,” Roberts joked to laughs from the committee room. “Sorry about that.”

Roberts later joked about the incident on Twitter:

It’s OK, Senator Roberts. We love that song, too.
