State Rep. Faye Hanohano on Thursday chose "mahaoi" as the Hawaiian word of the day on the House floor.
"Bold, impertinent, impudent, insolent, nervy, cheeky, rude, forward, presumptuous, saucy, brazen," Hanohano read from the Hawaiian-English dictionary translation. "Literal meaning: sharp temple."
Hanohano, who has been criticized recently for her conduct, then chose to use the word in a sentence.
"The reporters are rude," the representative said.
