I actually don't think so with him. I just don't see it. I get that he has recently had some heart felt monologues. But I read that his producers realized that plays well to the audience so after his healthcare speech they have tried to get him to be anti-Trump more often. And after the Vegas tragedy, who wasn't shaken to their core and emotional? I will say that I have watched him for years and he had a pretty shady, selfish, and demeaning history with some of the things he did when he was on The Man Show. I think a lot of women would be shocked to learn of his involvement in that show. I just don't see an empath doing those things for that many years without losing their mind with guilt. But it is hard to tell with actors and TV personalities because they so often project an image on camera that is so different and fake relative to the person they are in real life.
I will say that one person who I suspect was an empath was the late Chester Bennington of Linkin Park. I think it's pretty obvious in his song lyrics. And I think it played a role in his suicide (not being able to deal with the emotional overload of life as an empath).
