Video

Former President George W. Bush took time out of his schedule to meet with 6-year-old presidential history buff Macey Hensley during a visit she took last week to his Dallas library.

Footage of the young whiz kid meeting Bush was captured by the "Ellen" show and aired on the daytime program Monday.

While giving her a tour of the presidential library's replica Oval Office, Bush pointed to a painting of George Washington.

"You know what I call him?" Bush asked.

"What?" an intrigued Hensley asked.

"The first George W.," Bush joked.

During the visit, Hensley also showed off her act as a Bush ventriloquist — and even let the former president have a try at it.

"Just kind of try to hide your mouth behind his head," the 6-year-old advised.

Hensley asked if Laura Bush wanted to also give it a try.

"Sure, I've been trying to do this forever," she joked.

The meeting came a few months after Hensley met President Barack Obama.
