Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton kicked off a two-day visit to Southern California Monday.

She taped an appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" was expected to hold a series of fundraisers. Her appearance alongside Kimmel was her first since March. It was also her first late-night TV appearance since clinching the Democratic presidential nomination.

On the show, Kimmel asked her about conspiracy theories that her health was failing and, of course, Donald Trump.

Her visit comes as her campaign is spending $80 million to release new ads using Donald Trump's words against him.

Palestinian human rights advocates protested Clinton when her motorcade passed through Benedict Canyon Drive in Beverly Hills as she headed to billionaire Haim Saban's home for a fundraiser after her taping.

Los Angeles Lakers legend Magic Johnson co-hosted the fundraiser at Saban's home. Air7HD spotted the former First Lady being escorted by Johnson himself. There, it cost $100,000 for guests to receive a picture with Clinton.

Another fundraiser will be held for her by Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel at their home in the Hollywood Hills, with tickets reportedly going for $33,000 per person.

Hollywood star Leonardo DiCaprio was scheduled to hold Tuesday's fundraiser, but had to cancel due to work obligations.

Clinton was expected to attend two other fundraisers during her visit in Laguna Beach.
