The video can be seen below. Phillips gets right into the young man’s personal space. It appears Phillips is trying to intimidate him, to get him to move or flinch, or push back. At one point Phillips drum appears to touch the young man’s shoulder. Phillips beats the drum literally in the young man’s face. The drum stick is flashing by, only inches from his nose. At the same time, Phillips is chanting/screaming directly into the young man’s face. It appears to be an attempt at provocation by Phillips.
The young MAGA hat wearer refuses to be intimidated or provoked into a reaction that can be used against him.
It does not matter. The Washington Post runs a story claiming the young MAGA hat wearer showed disrespect by “smirking” at Phillips.
