Python is not statically typed. Mypy adds a layer of static typing on top of Python.

Right, but it's misleading to say "Python has static typing", because while an implementation of static typing in Python exists, the vast majority of the Python ecosystem doesn't use it.

That's why I didn't say 'Python has static typing', I said:

> Python 3 supports type annotations natively


> the mypy tool is an external typechecker that you can run just like any other static analysis tool

I think I was pretty clear that Python is not statically typed.
