Charlie Sheen faced defeat on both coasts Tuesday.

Sheen started the day leaving Los Angeles family court after failing to win full custody of his twin sons, Bob and Max. Later that night, Sheen ended his day in Washington D.C., where he was greeted with walkouts and considered a "presidential" run.

The former "Two and a Half Men" star flew the nation's capital to perform a show as of part of his "Violent Torpedo of Truth: Defeat Is Not an Option" tour.

White House party crashers Tariq and Michaele Salahi were among the show's attendees, TMZ reported.

And like his previous shows, reviews on his performance were mixed and included walkouts by audience members according to media reports. After traveling from the California, Sheen arrived an hour late to his show.

The late arrival stemmed from estranged wife Brooke Mueller's refusal to take a drug test, he told the audience.

"Here's what I did, though, and I'm not supposed to talk about this, but it's so f—ing cool, I might have to. She (Mueller) refused a test a few days ago, and to me that's, you've got something to hide, right. So I said, you know what? Let's f—ing test today. Let's test today. That's why I was f—ing late," Sheen said.

According to TMZ.com, Mueller recently refused a drug test that she was required to take as part of her custody agreement with Sheen.

Sheen wanted custody of the twins and wanted to eliminate all of Mueller's child support, which is about $55,000 a month.

While Sheen discussed the details of his personal drama, he also got political - referring to a Huffington Post poll that showed him "beating" the president.

"For starters, I was f—king born here, how about that? And I got proof! Nothing photoshopped about my birth certificate," Sheen told the crowd.

Sheen said a presidential run is "something I'd have to consider because I don't know how a custody fight would work with half a f—king first family."

Custody Battle with Brooke Mueller

Before taking the stage in Washington D.C., Sheen and his estranged wife, Brooke Mueller, showed up an emergency hearing Tuesday morning.

ABC News confirmed that no change was made in their custody agreement, which means that Mueller maintains primary custody of the boys.

E! Online reported that while Mueller said, "I'm not commenting" as she left the closed-door hearing, she was "smiling, crying, hugging her lawyer, winking at reporters and giving the thumbs-up sign."

Sheen, meanwhile, walked out of the courthouse quietly, holding hands with his girlfriend Natalie Kenly, surrounded by a somber-looking entourage.

Sheen and Mueller finalized their divorce months ago, but it does not become official until May 2.

The renewed custody battle -- the couple reached a custody agreement last month -- came amid reports that Mueller has returned to rehab.

Denise Richards, Sheen's ex-wife, reportedly stepped in to the drama. According to TMZ, she contacted Sheen and offered to help take care of Bob and Max until the custody dispute is resolved.

Sheen said he'd "keep her posted" on the situation.
