Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) over the weekend managed to get in digs at both President Barack Obama and likely presidential candidate Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), in an interview on why he opposes the Iran nuclear agreement.

In an interview with CBS, he started with Obama.

"Obama is a flawed negotiator," Graham said. "His foreign policy has failed on multiple fronts. Nobody in the region trusts him, the Iranians do not fear or respect him, so he'll never be able to get the best deal."

He then moved on to Paul.

"The best deal, I think, comes with a new president," he said. "Hillary Clinton would do better. I think everybody on our side except Rand Paul could do better."

Graham is considering a run for the White House, and Paul is expected to announce his candidacy on Tuesday.
