In his accent, the ng in -ing is replaced with a glottal stop. Most Americans replace it with an /n/.

I detected a glottal stop before the ending; this is common in that dialect for a /t/. I detected a /n/ sound at the end of the word, not a glottal stop.
You're right. I suffered some mental dyslexia there. :) We Americans often use a glottal stop there, too, but the following vowel may be shortened more; so much so that the phrase can sound like yeah, we're get non now.
