How do you say "awkward" in Arabic?

The Angry Arab blogger posted a clip of Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz, verbally sparring with an interviewer (or "interrogator," as McCain calls him) from Egyptian state television.

Presumably the topic of discussion was the Obama administration's decision to suspend some aid to Egypt, but we don't know for sure because the two men talk over each other so much that neither makes a discernible point in this excerpt.

And then McCain turns directly to the camera to explain why he's about to "terminate" the interview.

The Angry Arab notes that the interviewer is a former "propagandist" for the deposed Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak.
