I figured this out on my own. I solved this by installing Airdroid using an OTG USB adapter and a wired mouse. I then used the airmirror capability of the software to control a virtual mouse on the device. I do have root on the device, this may be significant to the operation of Airmirror. I could then accept the debug confirmation on the screen and complete ...

I knew my issue wasn't hardware, because when I rotated my phone, it was still unresponsive at the top left, so it was software issue. Someone mentioned FB or Messenger being the issue.
