Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., was repeatedly interrupted by what sounded like a Skype ringtone during a virtual interview on CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday.

HARRIS EMBRACES RUNNING MATE ATTACK DOG ROLE – SAYS CASE AGAINST TRUMP 'OPEN AND SHUT'

Sanders was trying to discuss former Vice President Joe Biden's choice of running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., and other topics when he was interrupted four times by the ringtone.

WATCH:

"I think you're getting a phone call. … Yeah, I can hear you, I think someone's calling you," host Jake Tapper told Sanders.

Sanders seemed unfazed by the noise and kept talking.

"I think you have an urgent phone call — hope everything's OK," Tapper said when Sanders signed off.
