If the server is physically in the US, administered by someone residing
in the US, is the EU really expecting US courts to enforce EU
laws/directives like the GDPR on a US citizen?

That's the big issue with a "right to be forgotten" law: every country
or almost every country has to be in agreement to enforce it or it's
pretty much worthless.
