As far as I'm aware, The French Revolution was started by the French, not by George Washington, who was and had been the only US President at the time of the French Revolution.

Unless the Americans have built a time machine.

How did the French Revolution affect American politics?

The French Revolution had no direct effect on the United States. A new country, the US had sufficient teething problems organizing and financing their new democracy, and the turmoil in France had no effect.

Why did some people outside of France support the French Revolution?

Because people outside of France, take the United States for example, wanted French to have the same freedoms that the Unted States has and they helped us in the American Revolution and some people believed we should return the favor.

Should the US have officially supported the French revolutionaries against the British?

The French did support the Americans some what in the war, however, only on a colonial point of view, with 13,500 French colonists joining the American Ranks and vast numbers of weapons and supplies being given to the miltia. French and British colonies were at war but not France and Britain themselves as the British had all but destroyed the French Fleet in the Seven Year War, the only thing that could stop the British from invading France itself would be a fleet, and since there wasn't a fleet that could stand up to the British Navy anymore a European War would have been foolish.
