Political leaders aren't demanding that their followers cut off association with members of the opposite party/candidate under penalty of shunning; the people doing the shunning are doing it of their own accord.
“They’re not going to be able to go to a restaurant, they’re not going to be able to stop at a gas station, they’re not going to be able to shop at a department store,” “The people are going to turn on them, they’re going to protest, they’re going to absolutely harass them.”
Waters seemed adamant the protests would continue until cabinet members tell Trump, “No, I can’t hang with you."-Maxine Waters
Sounds like exactly whats going on to me

The latest sign of political divide: Shaming and shunning public officials
Anger and division in American politics are creating a rising phenomenon: the public shaming and shunning of political figures while they are going about their private lives.
Pam Bondi, the Florida attorney general who often appears on Fox News and is closely aligned with President Trump, was shouted down at a movie screening in Tampa on Friday. “You are a horrible person!” one protester screamed at Bondi. The local newspaper reported that Bondi was escorted out of the theater by police.
Hecklers shouted “Shame!” at Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, a public face of Trump’s immigration policies, hastening her departure from a Mexican restaurant near the White House last week. Protesters even posted video of that encounter on Facebook.
Trump adviser and immigration hard-liner Stephen Miller also was confronted at a restaurant last week and called a “fascist.”
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) this weekend encouraged harassment of Trump officials in public spaces.
A sitting Democratic congresswoman has called for violence against those on the right, let that sink in
