Dakota Johnson described Taylor Swift as the “most powerful person in America” while making a dig at Donald Trump during her “Saturday Night Live” monologue.

The two-time “SNL” host – who was joined by musical guest Justin Timberlake for the live taping over the weekend – reflected on her first time hosting the NBC comedy staple.

“The last time I hosted was right after the ‘SNL’ 40th [anniversary]. I was actually in the audience for that special,” the “50 Shades of Grey” star explained, as a photo from the 2015 special flashed on screen.

“Look at this collection of people: Sarah Palin, George Lucas, Steven Spielberg,” Johnson, 34, went on.

“And look who’s sitting right behind me,” she added, as the camera zoomed in on the former Republican president.

“Crazy to be standing so close to someone who would become the most powerful person in America,” Johnson quipped, as the camera then shifted to the “Cruel Summer” singer, who was also in the audience at the time.

Of course, Swift, 34, is no stranger to the hallowed halls of “SNL” at 30 Rock.

Most recently, she and boyfriend Travis Kelce made surprise appearances to support rapper Ice Spice.

“They were very touchy-feely [backstage]. They were very cute and supportive of each other,” a source told Page Six at the time.

Johnson, for her part, reunited with Timberlake, 42, during her hosting gig, more than a decade after they starred in “The Social Network” together.

Timberlake and the “How To Be Single” star appeared together in a scene from the 2010 flick, about the rise of Meta founder Mark Zuckerberg, which Johnson acknowledged during her monologue.

“What are you doing up here, are you lost?” she asked the “Sexyback” singer, as he showed up on stage upon hearing his name mentioned.

Later in the night, the *NSYNC performer sang his 2013 hit “Mirrors” along with new tracks “Sanctified” and “Selfish.”
