Say no to drugs… but yes to MTV specials!

With Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton taking up nearly all of the spotlight in today's political sphere, President Barack Obama has to find unique ways to spend his last few days in office.

Luckily, one of the final items on his docket just so happens to be opioid addiction prevention, so he teamed up with Macklemore for the music network's upcoming documentary Prescription For Change: Ending America's Opioid Crisis!

In a teaser for Tuesday's hour-long special, POTUS opens up about his own history with drugs and alcohol while admitting his biggest vice was actually cigarettes, saying:

"For me, when I was a teenager, I used drugs; I drank. I pretty much tried whatever was out there, but I was in Hawaii, and it was a pretty relaxed place. I was lucky that I did not get addicted — except to cigarettes, which took me a long time to kick — but, it does seem as if the speed with which you get hooked on opiate-based medicines is fierce."

So candid!

But he wasn't just talking about his own personal struggles with substance abuse… the President's even had friends recover from their addictions, saying:

Charlie Sheen

Well, it really does look like Denise Richards and Charlie Sheen are keeping things civil for the sake of their kiddos!

TMZ reports the Anger Management star took a private jet — a gift given to the actor from an "old friend and future business partner, Robert Earl" — to treat his daughters to see their favorite performer in both Las Vegas and Seattle. Fun!

And despite all the contention (financial and otherwise) between them, the 45-year-old actress happily dropped off the girls for the trip and posed for a pic alongside Charlie and his friend Tony Todd (above).

In the meantime, doesn't sound like those money probz are affecting Sheen too badly right now…

The campaign, which is being put on by MoveOn.org's #UnitedAgainstHate effort, has released an open letter very critical of Trump, and asking American citizens to join against the Republican Party's nominee for President this fall in the very important election.

In part, the letter signed by all the celebs reads:

"Donald Trump wants to take our country back to a time when fear excused violence, when greed fueled discrimination, and when the state wrote prejudice against marginalized communities into law …. Some of us come from the groups Trump has attacked. Some of us don't. But as history has shown, it's often only a matter of time before the 'other' becomes me."

Wow.

They are NOT playing around — and it is so good to see!

Such a fitting tribute…

In the program, Vice President Joe Biden addresses the crowd with a message honoring the Orlando shooting victims, and to also denounce North Carolina's anti-transgender laws.

He said:

"Hi everyone. This is Joe Biden and I wish I could be there with you in person to honor some truly inspiring trailblazers. Each of you gives meaning to Harvey Milk's words, 'Hope never remains silent.' And we need you. We need all of you. Because as we celebrate a year of equality in marriage, draconian state laws deny transgender Americans basic civil rights. And in nearly 70 countries, it's a crime. It's a crime to be who you are. And because the freedom to live freely means being free from bullying, free from harassment, and free from violence. You know, our hearts are still heavy for Orlando, but you're showing tonight that we are Orlando. We're all Americans. Unbowed. Unrelenting. We endure. We overcome. We're hopeful and we will not be silent."'

The event will also spotlight LGBT pioneers Billie Jean King, Harvey Fierstein, Marsha P. Johnson, and Sylvia Rivera. Stage presenters include Emma Stone, Macklemore, Lance Bass, Chloe Grace Moretz, Janet Mock, Wilson Cruz and Candis Cayne.

It airs at 8pm ET/PT.

To hear Biden's beautiful video message, ch-ch-check it out (below).
