A Senate Finance hearing on U.S. tariff policy was disrupted Thursday not by protestors, but by one Republican’s Disney-themed ringtone. In the middle of questioning Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, Sen. Pat Roberts found himself in a unique predicament when his cellphone rang to the tune of “Let It Go,” the theme song to the popular 2013 movie “Frozen.” The Kansas Republican didn’t miss a beat, telling the committee, “just let it go.”
