STRATFORD, Conn. — Nate Seltzer, a 5-year-old from Stratford, wowed the crowd at “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” with his encyclopedic knowledge of geography and his joke about Donald Trump.

Nate, who is obsessed with maps and geography, appeared on the show earlier this week, and the video (above) has over 835,000 views on YouTube.

To cheers from the crowd, Nate revealed his favorite state, correctly identified a series of countries and flags from flash cards, and explained his hand-drawn map of the world and why he placed the president inside a certain country. ("It's really funny," Nate whispers to Ellen.)

At the end of his appearance, Nate gets a special geography-themed gift from Ellen.
