Ellen DeGeneres Talks To A 5-Year-Old President Expert

And it cracks Ellen up.

Recently, 5-year-old Macey Hensley went on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and surprised the audience by being a total genius when it comes to facts about the U.S. Presidents. 


She also surprised us by being absolutely hilarious and adorable.

In the video above, Ellen asks Macey when she started learning about presidents.

"Oh, when I was about... since I was four," responds Macey. "I started telling everybody the presidents on money, and I was asking for everybody's Jackson."

Then, Macey recites all the presidents using a song she made up.

"Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, Adams, Jackson, Van Buren..."

It's actually quite catchy.

Next, Ellen and Macey play a memory game.

Ellen holds up photos of random U.S. presidents and quizzes Macey on trivia about the first ladies, vice presidents and other fun historical facts. 

Ellen: Who's this?

Macey: John Quincy Adams.

Ellen: And who was the first lady?

Macey: Louisa.

Ellen: Do you have any fun facts on him?

Macey: He swam naked in the Potomac!

But Zachary Taylor is Macey's favorite president. 

"'Cause he wears blue, 'cause he was a general in the Mexican War, and blue is my favorite color," Macey explains in the video.

At the end of the clip, Ellen gives Macey her next President-Lincoln-inspired Halloween costume and a VIP pass to the White House.

Then Macey tells Ellen when she grows up, she wants to be the President of the United States too. 

We'd vote for her.
