    Former President Bill Clinton attended fundraisers Tuesday in San Francisco and Fremont, while his wife - Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton - is set to join him Wednesday for private event in Atherton.

    About 10 a.m., Bill Clinton was spotted entering the Julia Morgan Ballroom in San Francisco where he'll speak before heading to Fremont for a fundraising lunch. He waved "Hi, everybody," gave a big grin, and walked inside.

    Students from Sacred Heart Cathedral who are part of the Bay Scholars Program were chosen to hear him speak.

    "I hope that Bill is able to diffuse the negativity and the parties against party and actually push us to learn what our government is really about," said George Stratigos of Sausalito. "I don't like attack ads."

    After the San Francisco event, Bill Clinton visited the home of a Fremont tech executive.

    The small group inside the Fremont fundraiser said they were energized by the experience and look forward to casting their ballot for Hillary Clinton. The fundraiser cost between $1,000 to $10,000 to attend, depending on access to Bill Clinton.

    While the Clintons visit the San Francisco Bay Area, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump continued to hammer the Clintons. He thrust himself into the Clinton's marriage on Monday, going after Hillary Clinton in an Instagram post using the voices of two women who claimed they were sexually assaulted by her husband, Bill.

    “He starts to bite on my top lip and I try to pull away from him,” Juanita Broaddrick is heard tearfully saying in the black-and-white Instagram ad that shows Bill Clinton with a cigar in his mouth.

    Bill Clinton has never been arrested or charged with any such crime.

    The ad ends with Hillary cackling as a photo of the two Clintons appears with the title “Here We Go Again?”

    Trump tweeted, “Is Hillary really protecting women?” with a link to the explosive video.

    And in other Clinton news, Hillary Clinton said she will not debate Bernie Sanders before California's Democratic primary on June 7.

    Sanders told a crowd of supporters on Monday that the snub was "insulting."

    But 18-year-old Fiorella Martinez said that despite the bickering among candidates, she thinks it's "really cool" to see Bill Clinton campaigning for his wife.

    She came to San Francisco to see politics in person, as opposed to hearing about it second hand in the media and on Twitter. "I'm going in with an open mind," she said. "I'm here to learn.
