It's not really the US government. It's a private party that got a court decision, true.
But this is not the same thing as the President looking at phone records like the other issues.
I would submit the viewing logs aren't yours or any non-Americans.
The viewing logs belong to google/youtube.
Now, google probably could have stored those logs anonymously somehow on their end. Business records that don't collect user data.
But they didn't.
